Australia Departure Guide

Moving to Australia could be one of the most challenging and rewarding times in your life, so it’s important to feel comfortable with what lies ahead. Of course, international relocation is an extremely stressful time for anyone but being well-prepared could be the difference between having an awful time and actually enjoying this huge process. By working with Brighter Visas, you will have already saved yourself so much stress and time but there are still so many things that need to be done around this time. Why not get in touch with our team to see what they could offer you to help with your Australian relocation? We are a completely comprehensive immigration consultancy, meaning that we are here any time of day for our clients. Not only can we help you with all of the immigration paperwork, visas and applications but we’re also here to help with education and employment, too. Give our team a call right away and they’ll be happy to answer any questions which you may have about Australian immigration.

One invaluable piece of advice that we always give to our clients may seem simple but it’s always worth repeating: You should always wait for your visa or work permit to be accepted before you make any travel arrangements. This is because the processing itself, which is the responsibility of the Australian immigration authorities, may be subject to change and there may be delays. We are not able to give guarantees relating to the practices of a third party but will keep our clients up-to-date with the progress of their case every step of the way. While some visas only take a few weeks to process, others may take years owing to their complexity or changes in Australian immigration law.

You should ensure that you have notified everyone of your departure well in advance; this should include your utilities providers, doctors, schools and other services. There are companies available who can make all of these changes for you but they will charge a premium for their services. But it is of extreme importance that any important documents you may be about to receive are properly redirected to your new address to avoid the loss of sensitive information.

It is always a good idea to plan your currency exchange before you travel. After all, turning up in Australia with no money to spend could be quite a chaotic affair. We can advise you on where best to get your currency exchange sorted and let you know of the best rates, so that you can always get the best deal.

Our team are always here to talk with you throughout your visa application, so if you have any queries or questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch. It’s our customer service which sets us apart from the competition and when you see how far we go for our clients, you won’t think twice before choosing Brighter Visas to help you with your international relocation.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
